Apple and goat cheese salad recipe

Apple and goat cheese salad recipe

Apple and goat cheese salad recipe This is an easy apple and goat cheese salad recipe. It is the perfect recipe for the warmer months because it is quick, easy & includes different fruits.

Also, this salad recipe is inspired by the Le Bol patisserie in Vienna. We enjoyed the salad ‘Monsieur Seguin’ the most. Because of the pears, figs, kiwis and much more. Furthermore, the warm goat cheese and the typical French honey-mustard dressing made this salad so delicious. Due to the tanginess and creaminess of the both. That is why I wanted to share with you my own version of goat cheese salad recipe. Which I hope you will like. Feel free to use herbs like dill, parsley or other fruits like maracuja if you like.

Easy Nasi Goreng

Easy Nasi Goreng

Ever since we went to Amsterdam and ate Indonesian food at Kantjil de Tijger I wanted to make my own version. This is a healthy and easy way of making Nasi Goreng which means fried rice. Usually you fry your ‘old‘ rice  with your leftovers like veggies, fish & meat.

What you will need for the Nasi Goreng
(2 hungry people)

1 x onions
3 x chili
1x thumb sized ginger
3 x cloves of garlic
1/2 head of cabbage
2 cups of cooked/cooled rice
5 teaspoon of soy sauce
2 teaspoon of hoisin sauce

 

Instruction

1. First of all, throw the onions, chili, garlic & ginger with a little bit of water in the blender. If you don’t have a blender you can mash it.

2. Pour the oil in a pan and fry the puréed goodness that consists of the ingredients mentsioned before.

3. After that throw in the cabbage and mix everything together.

4. Push everything aside and place the rice in the middle and mix it with the greens and herbs.

5. If you notice that the food is a bit dry put a bit more oil into the pan.

6. Now season the mix with soy and hoisin sauce and stir  7 minutes until the rice turns light golden.

7. The dish is almost ready but you can place a fried egg on top of your plate that is covered with the tasty Nasi Goreng.

8. Lastly, don’t forget to enjoy and leave a comment on my post & tell me if you like it.

Simple Pho Chay Recipe

Simple Pho Chay Recipe

Today I wanted to share with you my own version of making vegetarian Pho soup aka Pho Chay. As the days are getting colder and we have welcomed September, I thought why not share one of my favorite soups.

Please keep in mind, that this dish is inspired by a Vietnamese cuisine and this is the way I love making my own soup.

Pho Chay is the vegetarian or vegan version from Pho Bo. Pho means soup in Vietnamese and Chay stands for vegetables.

As you might know, I always try to keep my recipes short and quick.

Ingredients for Pho Chay 2 p.

3x cloves

2x star anise

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1x big onion

1 thumb sized ginger

2-3 x pak choi

1 liter of vegetable stock

1 teaspoon of soy sauce

lastly, some cilantro, spring onions, Thai chili, sprouts and Thai basil

Instructions for the Pho Chay

1.First of all put the spices ( anise star, cloves and cinnamon) in the heated pot and roast it a bit.

2. After that throw in the halved onions and ginger and roast them with the spices together until the color turns.

3. Then add in 1 liter of vegetable stock water and let the broth cook with the other ingredients.

4. Now it is time to throw in the vegetables that you like – my choice: pak choi & carrots

5. Season the broth with soy sauce and let the broth simmer for 15 minutes. After that remove the spices, ginger and onions out of the broth.

6. At this same time cook your rice noodles according to the package instruction.

7. After that take a separate plate where I add my favorites vegetables like Asian basil, sprouts, Thai chili, spring onions and cilantro.

8. The final & fun part: take a bowl and put in your cooked noodles, herbs and pour in your yummy broth and enjoy!

I hope you like this Pho Chay recipe and if you do, please leave a comment.

P.S. Don’t forget to serve the Pho Chay with hoisin and sriracha sauce!!
